I Want To Be…

I know
That you’ve struggled.

To see a way ahead.

Struggled to sense
A surety
In what’s right
For you,
And your life.

I’ve struggled

There’s nothing simple
About this…

Is there?

At every turn,
We believe
That we’ve arrived
At a consummation,

We’ve finally found
Our one and only,

No longer needing
To search.

No longer needing
To hope.

No longer wondering…


Your time
Is here.

Let my heart,
Speak to yours.

Let the words
Of commitment
And trust
And forever

Wash over you.

So many pieces
To a complex
Puzzle of love,
And life…

And none,
So often,
Seem to fit…

Or can’t be found.

But now,
It’s different.

Hold me.

Feel a heat.

Feel a strength.

Feel a promise.

I don’t know
What lies before us…

But this,
I can assure you,

My love.

I am here to support you.

I am here to satisfy
And comfort you.

When the challenges
Of life are so daunting,
And the picture
Of that puzzle
Just can’t be completed,

Too many pieces

Know that I am here…


For you.

I will forever
Be that singularly special man
That makes you whole.

I want,
More than anything
To answer your call,

And meet your needs.

I want to be
That missing
Piece of the puzzle.

I want to be that

Missing piece

Of your heart.

      2. Yes…if only. Such depth of emotion and investment of self can be so substantive. Sometimes I think that pain in life adds a subtle richness in that it adds to the overall beauty of our existence…our tapestry. The good, the bad…the wins, and the losses. What we make of it…how we deal with it.

        Maybe, in some small way, that shows others the essence and strength of us….what we’re made of, the temper of our steel. Maybe that’s too philosophical. Sorry if I’ve waxed poetic. I just feel that our strength in the face of challenge speaks volumes. Ok, I’ll step down from my soapbox now. 🙂

        As always, I so much appreciate your interest and your thoughts…and know that I love your work! Keep it coming!! 🙂
